For me the outside-the-classroom value was at least 75%

I'd say that at least 50% of what I "learned" was irrelevant trivia. It was valuable only to the point that it signaled some sort of intellectual aptitude. As for the rest, half of it I had to unlearn because it was wrong (basically everything I was taught in software engineering has been repudiated by more modern practices) and the other half was valuable (mostly things having to do with written communication). There is no way I would attend an online-only university if I were in that situation now.
